Sorry to hear about your injury, Chrissi.  Sounds like you need some good deep tissue massage.  You're sure your calf is not not torn in any way?

brer - I know.  Haven't got my act together at all!  Have had so many things on including logistics for American weddings, etc.

Talking of which most of the UK wedding party (we had to return home unfortunately) went on to do a week's camping in Yosemite Park.  One of Jnr's uni friends who has turned into a very decent runner went out in the wilderness on his own and his 22-mile run turned into 27 miles.  At one point he came across a sign: 'Danger - mountain lions.  Runners are most at risk.'

Others of them got half way up Half Dome and they did other cool stuff.

Job done in a rather, for me, slow 4:08:53.  I was going well until mile 23 and then had to spend most of the rest of the distance walking.  Between the half way point and mile 23 I had overtaken 58 runners and been overtaken by 3 each of whom I was trying to keep in view.  Then it all went wrong and most if not all of those 58 passed me again!!

My brother wasn't one of the passed ones.  He started ahead and always kept ahead, finishing 74 places ahead of me in 3:57:20.  Ordinarily I would have caught him.

Good organisation I thought and a pleasant day for it.

Will be up some time shortly after 0500 ready to set out for #99.

I've messed up with 100 Mara Club. Apparently they need 8 weeks or so's notice to get presentations/vest ready, etc, which I haven't given them.  So it will be just a personal thing on 10 May (would be happy if you were there, brer) and hopefully vest will have arrived for #101 on 27 June.  That will be the Midnight Mountain Marathon (Brutal Events).

Best wishes to all who are racing or training tomorrow.  (Or attempting to get SNOD places which are like gold dust.)

Go joe - that's quite a common thought to have at mile 23/24 and not just in your first marathon!!

 

Thanks for link, Rob B

Pop it.   Cut the dead skin away as soon as you can.  Moisturise the new surface and keep it clean.  You should find it heals up in about 5 days.

Btw are the results up anywhere?  Race website seems out of date.

Malcs - no , this one was #98.  #99 will be this Sunday at Stratford-on-Avon.  I'm afraid my racing and training schedules are not text book.  I mainly do ultras (and very little training ...)

I'm impressed with all these fast debut times.  It's normally considered you're getting somewhere near your potential on your sixth marathon.  Up to this there are big improvements and afterwards you're just knocking minutes off.

Llanelli marathon went well last Sunday in an OK 3:55 and expecting about the same for this.  No telling what might happen because my brother is also running and we are just a tad competitive.
